Congratulations!  You've reached the website of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association, with churches in 31 cities of southern Los Angeles County.  Welcome!  We exist to Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip the leadership of local churches, empowering them to make disciples and launch new churches and ministries.  We are here to empower our pastors and church leaders to run their RACE--Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip!

40 Days of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."

Today's SIG Alert!



Day 37 – Ephesians 4.1-3: I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, entreat you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance to one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

  1. Pray that we will walk worthy of Christ, and in love with one another, and that the pastors of our churches will be transformed by the Holy Spirit to have only one desire—to please Jesus in all that they do.
  2. Rodolfo Martinez, Hispanic Church Planting Catalyst; Don Overstreet, Church Starting Catalyst; and other CSBC field and Fresno staff who work to help Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association churches achieve the visions that God has given them.
  3. Pray for the associate pastors, ministers of music/worship, youth pastors, education ministers, and all other ministers in our LBHSBA congregations, that they, and their families, may be used of the Lord in great blessing and power.
  4. Pray for Dr. John Shin, Director of LBH Zion Theological School (English CLD), and Rev. Chhomdoeun Buon, Director of Long Beach Discipleship Development Center (Cambodian CLD), the registrar, professors, and students, as they work and study to prepare themselves for further service to the Lord in His Kingdom.  Pray for Rev. Jose Luis Gallegos and the new EBI school being started this year at his church.  Pray that God will show us how to minister to hurting families of all kinds, including those of ministers.
  5. Pray for our 29 California associations, and their Directors of Missions (DOMs), staff, and volunteers who work to help their pastors and congregations achieve the visions God has given to them for their communities and cities in California.



Have You Considered?


The Bible is not the story of man searching for God, but of God searching for man.  —Greg Laurie


You must either give up your sins or give up all hope of heaven.  —C. H. Spurgeon.  RG: this is incomplete.  We cannot give up our sins.  We can only ask for Jesus’ forgiveness of them, and also also ask Him to empower us to overcome them.  The key verse is Colossians 1:27c, “Christ in me, the hope of glory.”  As we allow Jesus to live His life through us, we gain strength to overcome sin.


Stop looking at your problems and start looking at your God.  —Toby Mac


It is nothing new or original to say that golf is played one stroke at a time.  But it took me many years to realize it.  –Bobby Jones


Great effort springs naturally from great attitude.  –Woody Hayes


A good mind has never handicapped a player.  –Pete Carill


The one who follows the crowd will go no further than the crowd.  The one who walks alone will find himself in places that no one has ever been before.  —attributed to Albert Einstein


Often he who does too much does too little.  –Italian proverb


Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act.  There is no other rule to success.  –Stephen A. Brennan


Everything happens for a reason.  Sometimes the reason is you’re stupid and make bad decisions.  —unknown


If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.  —John Quincy Adams


An honorable defeat is better than a dishonorable victory.  —Millard Fillmore


Impossible isn’t something that can’t be done.  It’s just something that hasn’t been done before.  --unknown


People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.  --Dale Carnegie


You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.  The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.  --John Maxwell
